every summer I do consignment with boutique located in lovely summer
areas. Over the last month I have been getting back items that did
not sell over the summer months.
I am not upset that some items did not sell- I am just bummed about
the lack of care some galleries have for work when they ship back. I
just received a package from a gallery that wrapped my pieces in
tissue paper and then threw them in a lightly padded envelope. On
the UPS truck a few extremely heavy boxes must have been sitting on
my package because my work came back bent and one piece was almost
split in half. This is the third package I have gotten back from a
gallery shipped back this way! Usually just ear posts get bent or
broken off but this time my jewelry came back as garbage. I ship
items out in boxes I don’t understand why most of the consignment
places I deal with don’t ship back in boxes. UPS, USPS and Fed Ex
supply this stuff for free so I don’t get it.
Oh well another business loss!
thanks for letting me rant!
